The Emergency Mode Operation Plan requires businesses to develop, maintain, test, and audit a complete restoration process at a secondary location (off-campus data center) in the event of loss of data due to fire, vandalism, natural disaster, or system failure. Emergency mode operation plan for business continuity focuses on the continuous availability of services required by our customers during the disaster, rather than the methods or technologies used to deliver those services. This plan only covers responsibilities and tasks to be carried out by the overall Emergency Management Recovery Team. This suite contains template, guide and example/sample.

Emergency Mode Operations Plan Template
This main document contains the non-business unit activities that need to be completed in support of Emergency Mode Operations procedures. The following sections contain contact numbers, contact personnel, activation and notification procedures, an overview of recovery teams, vendor contact information and recovery locations.
The detailed recovery procedures for all business units (departments) are located in the appendix since these recovery plans are modified on a regular basis due to periodic configuration changes of the company’s Business Environment. Furthermore, with continual changes to the daily business processing activities and operations, personnel, resources, and vital documents such as the detailed individual Business Resumption Plans for each department will be updated on a regular basis to ensure changes in the business processing (operations) environment are reflected in the detailed Business Resumption Procedures.
The objective of this plan is to document critical resources and personnel requirements to protect the company if all or parts of its operations or computer services are interrupted by an outage or disruptive event. Information such as; critical business processes, technology components required, manual work-around procedures, identified alternate recovery sites, and key personnel contact information will be documented.
To make this plan functional, each member of the business unit (department) must be trained in their respective recovery responsibilities, overall company emergency management procedures (Crisis Management) and Disaster Recovery (Technology) Plans. Each member shall have in possession an electronic copy or printed plan that is not located at the work site. This copy can be kept at employee’s home, in the offsite storage location, another facility, etc.
